This young man is really a great player IMHO.

He has a wonderful sense of rhythm / timing and I think most of this comes from practicing with a Kaz-Box (metronome). I just wanted to share this with everyone.

Think about it! How do you spend your time practicing? It might be worth thinking about. smile.gif I know I am looking at a lot of things differently lately. wink.gif

You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

When are you going to be able to do the Joe Satriani /Vai Collab Emir? I'm ready and need something cool to work on and write.

Lets experiment with some melodic shred. smile.gif biggrin.gif

Awesome!! How you memorise an 8 minute solo as complex as that Petrucci one is beyond me!!

Also, dont know if you European guys know this but the term "Glasgow Kiss" is slang for when a scotsman head butts you!!

I don't see it that way, and realize nobody is going to agree with me, but to me he sounds kind of sterile, and I attribute that to way too much backing track practice, or drum beat or metronome. I found him to be very clean, and accurate, which I admire, but a bit uninspired, and so a bit uninteresting.


I use them some for drills, but have grown to solidly feel that if you really ever want to take it to your potential, you need to do most of it on your own, and not overdo the background support. This is not a novel opinion, there have been teachers in the past, who would not even let students use one at all, such as that taught classical. I feel that the background noise not only makes you sterile because of the clock like timing, but also the sound covers up your own imperfections, and lulls you into thinking that you sound better than you really do.

Here is an old recording by an 83 year old woman, on piano.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wk23BePlKNA

I came across this when I was learning Hot's Alla Turca, and found that he was quite similar to this, at least I think so. Imagine how good she must have been in her prime. And as far as backing goes, Hot did a fine job on the backing. And I like playing against it some.


I was trying to figure out her bpm, and found she was all over the place, ranging maybe from a little over 120, to maybe 145. That is how you play music, not like you are a robot.

Anyway, everyone who read this can tell me how stupid I am, and how I don't know anything, although I am going to continue to be stupid like this, because it makes sense to me.

I don't get it, where does the bpm change?
If you stamp your foot with the song you don't need to change tempo anytime in the song.
But as it's just foot stamping and not by my metronome so can i be wrong, sorry about that.

There are parts where she varies tempo, sometimes for a brief period, or as a buildup to some faster section. Any great play, classical play, has variations in rhythm, organic and often subtle variations. The main reason I don't do the backing or beat as much as I used to, is that they lull you into thinking you sound better than you really do. Maybe not a simple metronome, but a drum beat or backing will do that. But also just that while it is good to be able to hold a steady beat, and I do use them for that purpose, to make interesting music, inspired music, if you really want to do that, I think you have to get away from that to an extent, and find your own organic rhythm.

edit: echo can do the same. I like echo, but really it can cover up a lot of flaws. When I first started I might hear someone play something real fast with a lot of echo, and it sounded great. But now later I can hear a lot of imperfections. I don't want that for myself. You have to be patient to get things right, or you can turn on the echo and say forget it, nobody on youtube knows the difference. To each his own. As I said, this guy is not inspired, his music is to me very accurate, but way too clock like. Other may feel differently.

LOVE that glasgow kiss. I adore the irish influences,so melodic and inspiring:D But I agree, that this guy is a bit robotic:D I mean, he seems bored (I know hes probably not) . He know's it TOO well. I think he play's it TOO good, know what I mean?BTW, when I hear music like this, with those irish things in it. I get an immense sense of patriotism all of a sudden:D Not kiddin;)
